You are not in May 1997 and you do not have the foresight to be investing in a new Amazon.
Fuck me, you're one hell of a dickhead.
He’s got a cool name though.
First ddraig now you. It's what I come here for, to be patronised by idiots.
Just to unpack the idea of wall st algorithms are you saying that such things are all powerful wrt crypto prices? Do they control such things? What is it you're saying?
Are we ticking off :Things crypto was supposed to be but isn't?
He's a conspiracy theorist isn't he. Ok it's crypto not gunmen but the approach here is identical.
if you're going to have a dig or chuck your toys about and mention me at least @ me properly you coward
is this what you're whinging about?? fucksake
This comparison would only make sense if Amazon stock existed only as essentially worthless certificates with the word 'Amazon' on them, not as shares on a business that grew into a massive company selling books and shit. Revenue went up massively hand-in-hand with the increase in share value, though there wasn't a lot of profit.

Not very bright are they...
Bitcoin gobbling Iceland energy supplies
Proletarian Democracy takes an official "Bitcoin? NO!" position following this terrible news from SETI:
Bitcoin hinders the search for aliens
Have heard lots of people complaining about how GPU prices have been pushed up by btc mining but mostly that's gamers and such like. Now it's interfering with possible alien contact I'm up in arms
Fucking thing's back up at £7k now.
Don't worry, the aggressively expanding hegemonizing bitcoin swarm will eventually conquer other life-bearing worlds too, they will all eventually be assimilated.
Or maybe this explains the Fermi Paradox, in that once your society discovers cryptocurrency it turns inwards, spends all it's time energy and person-power on crypto projects and neglects the wider universe entirely... eventually encasing the local star in a dyson-sphere to feed the energy requirements of their crypto-network and disappearing altogether into the now system-spanning crypto-hole. Occasionally, a satoshi-particle will escape, this is how we are able to detect where life-bearing worlds once existed
Can someone advice me please?
i'm trying to set up a Bittylicous account to purchase bitcoin. they are asking for very sensitive documents to prove I am who I say I am. Utility bills, passport or driving licences etc. This is making me nervous.
Bittylicious | Buy Bitcoins Quickly in The UK
most of them will, it's hard to buy BTC without ID
Finally a sensible answer to the question of "is there other life out there in the universe?"
I bought through bittylicious when I was buying btc, don't think there's any issue with documents, they need it for money laundering regs, I sent mine in without concern. I've not had my identity stolen (yet!)
Must be a lot of grizzled old bitcoin prospectors who remember the Great Crash of '13 saying 'I told you so.'
I'm a gamer and a SETI advocate, so this is crap news on top of crap news.
Today is the day when the boyfriend's 'short' ends/ closes, he hasn't found out yet what the 'payout' will be - if anything. The way I'm looking at it now (with me still having my bit of btc and him putting money on it going down in value) I placed a bet on people being stupider / more irrational than he thinks they are, which is quite fitting as he's a much more optimistic person than me.

‘No Cash’ Signs Everywhere Has Sweden Worried It’s Gone Too Far
The solution to Sweden’s stereotyped old people not being able to handle paying with a Visa card is... to introduce another complex digital transaction for them to use instead?
interesting that Sweden had one of the lowest tax evasion rates around as well
More people prepared to buy for the higher price than those prepared to sell for the lower price.
